Bellevue Emergency Medical Services-Current and Past Members extends our deepest sympathy to long time Charter Member Lester Michels family and friends. Lester started the Ambulance Service as one of the 36 founding Fathers in 1972 and continued serving until 1993. After retiring from the service Lester and his wife continued to support BEMS by donating breakfast products and attending our annual breakfast. Member Max Reed recalls serving with Lester and covering a lot of calls in the 21 years. Max said he will remember Lester for his smile and willingness to serve countless hours as a volunteer.
